Deteriorating bridge forces lane closures on 68th Street

A routine inspection of the 68th Street bridge over the Arizona Canal, just north of Indian School Road, discovered deterioration that will require substantial repair. Given the nature and extent of the deterioration, the city has closed the two inside lanes of traffic on the bridge until it is repaired or replaced.

The initial inspection and closure occurred Jan. 12; a detailed inspection of the bridge is under way and based on those findings a repair plan and timeline will be developed. 

All bridges in Scottsdale’s street network are inspected every two years to ensure they are safe for vehicles and pedestrians.
